Description

We’ve all experienced the dreaded blank page, or even gotten bored and stale with a project we’ve been staring at for maybe a bit too long. Or maybe you’re looking for ways to spice up a session or arrangement for use live. The CogNition Idea Tools are just what the Dr. ordered!

The CogNition Idea Tools are over 20 years in the making! Having worked with David Zicarelli of Cycling 74 on “M” in the 80s and pioneering realtime, interactive algorithmic music software, eraserMice brings the concept of conducting and manipulating musical processes to Ableton Live as a set of Max for live devices that are completely interactive and integrated like nothing you’ve experienced (well, unless you are an “M” user, in which case you’ll feel right at home.

So get ready for ideas that were ahead of their time in the 80s brought to new life as the CogNition IdeaTools from Isotonik Studios.

NOTE: Also available as part of the eraserMice Bundle long with ProSession & OSCular Series

Q. What are the Minimum System Requirements?

A. Ableton Live 9.7 & MaxforLive 7

Q. What’s the Installation Process?

A. If the files provided end in .amxd then these should be downloaded and saved to a folder on your harddrive, the files can then either be dragged into your Live set with the mouse or you can add a file path to the folder they’re contained within in the Live Browser.

If the files provided end in .alp then these are Ableton Live Packs, double clicking them open will usually provide a warning regarding the files “Legacy” status, this is nothing to worry about, it’s just the only way we can make a pack that will install itself into your Live browser alongside the factory content.

Our Products are generally provided as Zip file downloads which in all cases will need to be extracted and saved to your hard drive prior to installation. Details on the different file type provided and what to do with them are below.

.alp Files – These are Ableton Live Packs and will install directly into the Packs Section of the browser of Ableton Live. When you double click on them you will see a pop up window asking you to confirm that installation is ok as the files are described as “Legacy”. This is fine and you are ok to proceed, the packs are created using the format for an earlier version of Live and so remain compatible with the current version.

.amxd files – These are individual MaxforLive Devices and can be stored anywhere on your hard drive. We’d advise creating a folder for them and then adding that folder as a location within the Places section of Lives Browser.

Control Surface Scripts – Please refer to the individual User Guides provided with your download

ClyphX Pro – Please refer directly to the manual and installation video for this specific product.

Novation Circuit Packs – These are provided as individual Sysex Files and as a complete bank file. All are to be installed using a version of the Circuit Editor and not via Novations Components back up utility.
